Rural Chapter from the 2016 Biennial Report to Congress
Read about program accomplishments from July 2013 - June 2015 and hear from grantees in their own words.
Prior to the grant, mental health was next to nothing. Within our reservation we only had 2 mental health providers to service the whole reservation. With the grant we were able to secure a contracted mental health counselor who specializes in domestic and sexual violence. She provides services 2 times a week or more as needed. We have been able to refer clients to her during crisis mode instead of waiting several weeks to a month or more to receive mental health help.
